T.J. Miller on real bears, Yogi Bear and Denver's comedy scene

Gold teeth are not cheap. That's just one of the many things we learned during our chat with T.J. Miller, a Denver-raised comedian who has since gone on to mind-boggling heights of fame with supporting roles in such movies as She's out of my League and Yogi Bear. But his first love is comedy, and as such, he'll be in Boulder Saturday night for a live taping of No Real Reason, his upcoming one-hour special on Comedy Central (free tickets are available); in advance, he schooled us in the ways of working with bears both real and fictional, the absurdity of hip-hop and repping the Denver comedy scene.
